What Will a Close-Up Actually Do?

Depending on the style of event you are hosting, a close-up magician can perform in a number of ways. Some people prefer to get their performer to mingle with guests and “work the room”, providing illusions and sleight of hand tricks to small groups of people. This method is particularly suited to drinks receptions or wedding breakfasts. Another option is for a close-up magician to perform a bit of a stage-show or work in a central location from a magic table. You could, of course mix a combination of the two.


A close-up magician will perform tricks and illusions to guests and really get them talking and gasping with amazement. Many will also get your guests involved which adds a fantastic interactive element to your celebration as they have fun with playing cards, borrowed bank notes and coins.

How Long Will a Close-Up Magician Perform for?

Due to the style of performance, a close-up magician can happily perform for a number of hours but it is always best to check with your performer before you book to make sure that they can accommodate your event.

The prices to hire a close-up magician in London can vary widely depending on the level of experience your performer has. Some of the acts listed on our website have performed at some prestigious locations across London, such as The Ritz, The Savoy and The Dorchester hotels.
